Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Ilhan Omar found herself in hot-water Thursday over renewed accusations of anti-Semitism; saying she routinely “chuckles” when Americans refer to Israel as a Democracy.
Omar was speaking during a recent interview when she was asked to comment on her previous comments that the Jewish State has “hypnotized the world.”
“We still uphold it as a democracy in the Middle East I almost chuckle because I know that if we see that any other society we would criticize it, call it out,” said Omar. “We do that to Iran, we do that to any other place that sort of upholds its religion. And I see that now happening with Saudi Arabia and so I am aggravated, truly, in those contradictions.”

“It is disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks,” Rep. Steve Scalise said Thursday.
Omar recently defended her scathing critique of Israel; writing back in 2012 “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
